June 6th is the anniversary of D-Day, the Normandy Landings in 1944 when the Allies invaded German-occupies Western Europe and perhaps can be said to be the turning point in the war.
Reader Randy alerted Jerry to this quiz which tests your knowledge of the Operation in some detail. The quiz is fairly quick to take but it requires a respectable knowledge of the planning and execution of the invasion. Jerry took the quiz and netted 56% which he was surprised at.
I don’t count myself as knowledgeable on the subject, although somehow I have gleaned certain facts which I must attribute to Hollywood (but not Saving Private Ryan) rather than any study or reading.
My parents were children during War 2, but in spite of it overshadowing their young lives they rarely if ever spoke of it at home. One is British and the other is German, so perhaps they felt it was a subject best left alone.
Do take the quiz and weigh in below with the score.
